Product Details

Grow complete plants in 28–30 days! Fast Plants® (Brassica rapa) are rapid-cycling plants closely related to cabbage, turnips, broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables. Over the course of 30 years, Dr. Paul H. Williams (University of Wisconsin–Madison) successfully bred a type of wild Brassica by artificially selecting and breeding plants with certain traits.

Growing Fast Plants is easy—all you need is continuous fluorescent light, water and fertilizer. Because these plants have been artificially selected, there are many controls built in to the plants that make them perfect for research in genetics, host-parasite relations, molecular biology, cell biology, plant biochemistry, population biology and plant breeding. Package of 200 seeds. Variable for expression of purple pigment in stems.
